pakistan? we have not declared war on pakistan. ascends drones that killed 1,000 people because pentagon officials say these people a terrorist? yes, says the american government and former u.n. ambassador john bolton says it is morally right to kill these people with drones and we are safer because of it. it does not seem morally right. take the word of some government officials that this guy is a terrorist and send a machine to kill him and to kill civilians along with him. >> well, the whole point of the war on terror from the perspective of the terrorist is to abuse the rules we have tried to create over hundreds of years to separate the combatants from innocent civilians. so the war on terror is different from traditional state to state war. the commander-in-chief authority vested by the constitution in the president gives in the direction over the were capabilities of the united states. his efforts both in the bush and obama administration to go after the terrorist, i think is entirely justified both by the constitution and by our inherent right of self-defense. john: american kill

of a bill that republicans try to move forward to fbi the agencies, including the pentagon the ability to privatize. in one instance to say cut the waste, fraud and abuse they could find and not hurt the personnel. is that possible? >> it doesn't look like it. both sides are dug in. any for capital hill is for show. that is an issue that is punted to the next crisis deadline. >> which is the c.r., the continuing resolution. >> exactly. when funding if government rups out. hard and fast deadline. that is different from what we talk about now. people will notice government shutdown. they may not immediately notice the impact of the sequester. what is fascinating about the debate is the reason both sides are amped up. nobody knows what is going to happen. nobody knows if there are fewer teachers in school or fewer tsa agents and how it affects waiting in line at the airport. >> bret: it's your sense that democrats reach the point they are now pulling back the fight to go to the c.r.? to march 27 and continuing resolution? >> i think both sides are. >> bret: you agree? >> i think they made

heading up the pentagon and obviously israel will want our help if they find themselves in an armed conflict with iran. what are the stakes for israel in seeing hagel? president obama is going to set that policy not hagel, right? but he's got some independent power. >> well, look, the question is, what kind of message are we sending the enemies of the united states which are also the enemies of all person liberal democracies, including our ally in the middle east on the front line on the war of islamist terrorism. last week hamas in its newspaper published an article, saying that a confirmation of hagel of secretary of defense would be in its favor and reduce the likelihood of the united states and iran getting nuclear weapons and reduce the united states supporting israel from defeating hamas and this is from a designated terrorist group and beyond that, is he an effective leader? does he have the credibility to reach across the aisle and do what he says he's going to do with the republicans, for example? >> i'm sure he would have rather not had the help from hamas. thank you for y
